    Weird Electrical Issue. DTCs u1026 u1041 u1096

    UPDATE: So I have the whole front of the cab torn apart. I think I've isolated the problem. The ignition switch at the fuse block in the cab I unplugged and plugged it back in and got the problems to stop. After moving the plug around I could get the issues to pop up again and by unplugging and...

    Weird Electrical Issue. DTCs u1026 u1041 u1096

    That's the next piece I wanted to test. I'm sitting around 202k. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Weird Electrical Issue. DTCs u1026 u1041 u1096

    I have an issue I have been trying to resolve the last few days to no avail. I Have a 2000 Silverado 5.3 4wd. Started the the truck the other day and the battery light was on and I had no ODO or PRND321 light and the engine temp and fuel gauge did not work. Along with those issues my 4wd push...

    Shock placement / Coilover conversion

    I have been in the process of converting my truck (2000 silverado 1500 4wd) to coilovers. After a set back and a long wait to get the right parts sent to me I am finally ready to start. I plan to eventually go long travel but I would like to start with just upgrading the suspension and see what...

    GMT800 vs GMT900 Front Suspension

    So I went to the parts store and measured some 07+ control arms. The upper control is narrower on the newer models and will not fit into the stock mounting location on the older models. The shock and coilovers are also set up differently. On the old models the shock runs behind the CV whereas...

    GMT800 vs GMT900 Front Suspension

    I have a 4wd GMT800 that I have done a coilover conversion on. I have been looking for extended control arm kits for 4wd that dont go full long travel (2-2.5 wider). I have not been able to find any so I have started to look into doing a completely custom build. However, there are plenty of of...

    Torsion Bar vs Coil Over (not beating a dead horse)

    I have a lift currently and upgraded shocks, but nothing special. It crawls ok but more articulation would be nice. I am looking to mostly improve it on the washboard, rocky roads, and mild whoops. As of now I have to creep through those sections of trails, otherwise have my fillings knocked...

    Torsion Bar vs Coil Over (not beating a dead horse)

    I am not trying to beat a dead horse here on comparing the two springs. Rather just looking for some advice on a suspension set up. I have been doing a ton of research and have talked with fab shops and have been given two different opinions so I am looking to get some more. This will be a 4wd...

    Long travel rear end

    One last question for you guys. With a max of 16 inches in the rear, do I need to worry about my drive shaft and transfer case, longer slip yoke?

    Hey, thanks for the info on my post about the rear end setup on my truck. Do you happen to have pictures of your build? I've got a pretty good idea from your description but your tuck is a newer model and I'm interested if the frames are the same or similar. If your build is working for you I...

    Long travel rear end

    Wow, That is actually a ton of room leftover. I may be able to make something like that work. Is that your truck Biggjim?

    Long travel rear end

    I imagine you would get quite a lot of bucking. With the mid travel setup I would get about 11 inches at a maximum of travel. What kind of performance can I expect out of a MT setup? I have not found many reviews for MT setups on a 4wd. The 2wd MTs are getting 14 inches of travel so its more...
